Toshiba’s attempt to provide a laptop that is low cost and yet gives the feel of name Toshiba. Easy to use, comfortable to carry, reasonably modern looking and best when it comes to battery timing. 8 hours battery life is the top benefit of this laptop. Apart from that you have 13-inch screen, 3.3 pound weight, 1.4 GHz Intel Celeron processor with Chrome OS inside.
Acer Aspire AS5750-6667
Looking for some computational power and warranty, this is the one for you. Intel core i3 inside and a two year warranty is available. A bit down on the looks but handles day to day computational tasks easily. Runs Windows 7, can handle Windows 8 and 8.1 without any effect on speed of processing power. 15.6 inches screen, 5.23 pound weight, 4GB RAM (impressive) are some specs you simply don’t get in this price range that easily. It has 650GB internal storage.
Looking for a Windows 8 laptop that offers you touch screen experience? Try this one. It is easy to use and easy to carry, comes in 11 inch size, offers a good touch experience, and has Intel Bay Trail processor inside. This might not be a good option for you if you want to do some heavy computation but it’s good enough for day to day music, movies and web surfing. 5.5 hours battery life sounds good when you get 500GB Hard Disk and 4GB RAM with it.
Acer C720 Chromebook
For internet browsing and other web applications, this is great. It has Intel Celeron processor and 1366 x 768 display. It does not have any impressive looks but it does have an impressive computational power and an even better battery life. It runs on Chrome OS and handles day to day computational tasks very well. It has a matt display without any kind of glare in it. Battery life is about 6.5 hours. It comes both in 16GB and 32GB versions.
This laptop offers you 15.6″ HD Widescreen CineCrystal display, Windows 8.1 experience with touch screen. The impressive part is that touch screen is multi touch (supports 10-point gestures), has a nice display and still has not been a cause of turn down on computational power. Intel Celeron N2920 quad-core processor with an 8GB RAM is more than enough for day to day computation. The only downside is 4 hours battery life.
